Description

"Her face, barely ten paces away, shocked me. Whatever grace I'd seen accumulated, reflected in her elegance, was betrayed by that terrible mask, its dreadful emptiness. Maybe it was this, the space in between, between tragedy and grace, that drew me towards her. But when she reached under her cape, pulled out my scrap of paper and studied it, I didn't hesitate. I raised my gun to her head. I took aim." Are we really in control of our lives? Or are the stories we tell ourselves, to make sense of the world, nothing more than illusion? In HORRORSCOPE, the human desire for destiny, for a sense of purpose, collides with everyday chaos to create a kaleidoscope of sex, death, love and betrayal. As unconnected events begin to suggest an arc of predestination, secrets and confessions from the past paint an increasingly disturbing portrait of a man who, far from being the tragic outcast we first meet, may well be a manipulative and possibly dangerous fantasist. Never sure whether our narrator is deceiving himself, creating an elaborate fantasy or telling the truth, HORRORSCOPE draws the reader into a dazzling world where nothing is quite what it seems, and where a creeping sense of dread promises a terrifying climax. HORRORSCOPE. A revelation awaits. For more information, and to read excerpts from the novel, please visit www.dmgray22.wix.com/horrorscopenovelshow more

About David Gray

David Gray, a writer of fiction and non-fiction, lives in Scotland. He tortured his family with self-penned short stories from an early age. His first reportage, after a glam-rock concert at the age of eleven, was copied by hand and distributed to friends who, even today, struggle to forget such a generous gesture. Out of short trousers, some of his stories began to win prizes, but no money. He edited, for money, a weekly newspaper in a beautiful Highland setting, where reports of scandal, intrigue and occasional violence cheered readers no end. Later, in Edinburgh, David wrote for regional and then national newspapers, where reports of scandal, intrigue and even greater violence cheered readers endlessly, while turning to short fiction, for no money, but another prize or two. In between times, magazines published his work, whether on the painstaking creation of handcrafted violins, climbing Scottish mountains, or celebrating life, death and superstition in some of the world's most ancient cities. David's journalism has also illuminated subjects as diverse as motorcycling in the Swiss Alps, the joys of live rock music, and the value of silence in a very noisy world. Horrorscope is his first novel. For more information, and to read excerpts from the novel, please visit www.dmgray22.wix.com/horrorscopenovelshow more
